Coming from the team behind Hackney's Pidgin, we call our food 'modern European' which basically means nothing and everything at the same time. Dishes aren't rooted in any particular cuisine but instead focus on great ingredients combined to make something that is above all delicious but that also contains some element of surprise - whether that's Jerusalem artichoke with a ranch butter sauce and avruga caviar, steak tartare with truffle crisps and taleggio or oysters with apple and chilli crisp.
Our wine list includes the biggest selection of wines on tap in London, as well as a small list of wines by the bottle, all from independent and independently minded producers.
Cocktails are potent and fun and include a szechuan pepper oil negroni and a kombu-infused martini.
We look forward to seeing you at Magpie soon.

Very nice meal with good ambience and great location. Service was very good. And the cocktail I had was delicious.
Lovely meal, good service, although I think I preferred the previous incarnation with the trolley service!
What a brilliant restaurant. Delicious food, great service, beautiful atmosphere - it was like being in a movie! Have the fried chicken to start; it was delicious.. thank you!
Lovely spot! We were a group of 6 and shared a few small plates and had each a main. We were all very happy and satisfied with the food quality and quantity. The a la carte menu is not cheap but the lunch set menu is good value! The service was very friendly attentive and patient. Would want to go back!
Food ok but nothing memorable and not flavoursome
Service awful considering we were one of 4 tables in the restaurant. The waitress kept wanting to take the menu away but there was no one else she needed to give it to. She had no personality and made no effort to interact with us.
So great. I don't aim to return to places often when there's so many restaurants to try in London, but I will definitely be going back to Magpie.
Love this place. Went twice in a week. Awesome food and lovely ambience. The roast is realllly good.
Really delicious food- you could tell thought had gone into the flavour combinations and everything added something to the dish! Friendly staff and good location too- hidden from the bustle of regents st.
Creative and delicious food in an awesome space. Staff very knowledgeable. Friendly atmosphere. Stands out as the best place to eat on Heddon Street
Fantastic friendly service but everything else was a let down. I can only describe the food at this place as dull and boring. No atmosphere either with very few diners. The food has no pizzazz whatsoever and the flavours throughout are really bland. In fact I struggled to get any flavour out of my dessert. Hated the toilets as well. I feel sorry for anyone who sits opposite the entrance to the loos. Horrid taps and sink in full view of the diners. Not hip and trendy, just wrong.
Such a lovely restaurant in an upmarket pedestrian square. Excellent food and service.
Always nice to come here on a weekend afternoon. It is fairly quiet and you can easily spend a couple of hours at Magpie. Food is outstanding and changes every month (so do cocktails!). Great selection of wine on offer, too. Service is very good - friendly and effortless.
food choices v poor and v overpriced, waitresses sporadically attentive
Great value set lunch, delicious and fresh seasonal food and a good wine menu
Weird bar experience (crappy stools & limited menu), but everything else superb. Menu & food prep were top notch, and best dessert (mousse) on the planet. well done!!
Client suggested the venue and wanted something off the beaten path and not too expensive. This hit the spot in terms of secluded location and a good lunch menu that wasn't overly filling/complex. It ticked the boxes for all - the dishes had random combinations (squid & sausage) and the pickled fries aka ready-made salt & vinegar chips but importantly, they all worked and lunch was polished off.
Wonderful place with amazing service, food and drinks!
First rate in every respect and highly recommended
The food was overpriced and lacked taste and even though we had booked a table in advance all the outside tables were given to walk-ins. As a result we were the only guests dining inside which felt weird.
great food — creative, refreshing, very tasty. the burrata stuffed with beets(sauce?) was divine. servers could have been a bit more attentive — we had to wave our hands and stare in attempt to make eye contact a couple of times before they noticed. otherwise, great ambiance and décor — i always like an open kitchen. oh! and delicious miso ganache bites are served when you ask for the cheque.
Superb evening. Truly outstanding food and fun waiter who was really helpful when we couldn’t decide what to order. And a great cocktail to start with too. Full marks!
Great menu with local British produce .
Worth a visit .
It was really hot and we could not sit outside. The fans inside were insufficient. But these hot days are pretty rare so no worries. The waiter was very good .
It was a special occasion and Magpie delivered on all fronts. Great food, marvellous cocktails and ice cold beer. Service was really good too..what more do you want.
Summer lunch sitting outside. Set lunch menu was great. Look beautiful and tasted great. Service friendly and efficient. Wine a little pricey but lots by the glass and 1/2 carafe
Oppressive summer evening, restaurant was uncomfortably hot. No air con. Starters were ok, but nothing to write home about. Main course, choice of three, one meat, one fish, one vegetarian which to be fair we knew was the case, Two of us opted for the halibut, only to be told there was no halibut. Had monkfish instead. A tiny piece each, over cooked and rubbery. The vegetarian dish was also a massive disappointment. a courgette with who knows what? The steak received praise. And the drinks? Pre-dinner beers came in cans. Water was not cold. The most staggering thing of all was that on ordering a £45 bottle of Chardonnay, we received the wine in a decanter! No sign of the bottle, and to be honest who knows what we were drinking? Service was very mixed, staff were either over-attentive or nowhere to be seen.
The bill came to £290 for four of us. Happy to pay this for good food, wine and service, but we didn't feel we received any of these. Would not recommend at all.
Creative, flavorful and well-executed dishes. We shared a lot of the smaller snacks to start. The fried chicken being the favorite for all. There wasn’t one dish we didn’t enjoy. The cocktail menu also very fun, relevant and creative. Overall a sensational last meal in London before heading back to the states. Highly recommend this place. Great food, drinks and service.
Beautiful food and drink, lovely unpretentious interior and the staff are very friendly and helpful. One of the best spots in London.
Our new favourite restaurant in London. Great value set lunch of incredibly pretty food with scrumptious options for the healthy-minded and the feaster. Modern and charming menu, interior, crockery and cutlery. Very highly recommended.
It has the atmosphere of your favourite local restaurant but in the middle of the West End with a relaxed but efficient service ethic. Central but surpsingly calm given the proximity of Regent Street. The wines were well priced and the steak main course one of the best I've had a long time. The baked olive nibbles were delicious. Casual and contemporary, we'll definintely be going back.
The food was sublime! Such interesting, fresh and delicious flavour combinations. Service was impeccable.
I thought the food & service were excellent, even if the portion sizes were on the small side.
All the snack and starter dishes were fantastic but unfortunately this left us slightly underwhelmed with the mains which were a little homogeneous in terms of textures and flavours. Perhaps a bit of an anomaly though and would still return to check out their regularly changing menu.
We loved our evening here. Lovely food. Laid back. Relaxed.
Service let down by waiter recommending a rose wine that transpired was over GBP 50 per bottle!! I would not expect a top restaurant to recommend a wine in excess of GBP 50 without mentioning the price - let alone a casual dining restaurant.
Shame because other than this unfortunate experience the restaurant was excellent.
We’ll definitely be back!
We were a party of five and went through virtually the whole menu, wanting to try everything. They were all delicious! Service was attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was buzzing. Thoroughly recommended!
Excellent time, great service, the food was excellent.
Lovely food, nicely tucked away from busy Regent Street and great service
Top quality food, beautiful flavours. Could have done with another few options for main courses. Lovely staff. Worth a visit.
